Healing with Art and Poetry

Last week I had a dream that I was at a friends house. They have many dogs in their home. The owner of the house is a hunter. I am sitting in their living room and I have my two little puppies on my lap. The other dogs are laying down on the floor near me. Everything seems normal until a tiger and some mountain lions start circling us. They tell me they are trained and domesticated but I am still scared. One cougar starts playing with my puppy Luke but he is being too rough. I put my hand out to get him off and the cougar starts playing with my hand and biting it like a puppy bites to play. He thinks he is being gentle but he is not. I look down at my hand and it is being destroyed. I push his giant head away trying to get him off and then I wake up! EOD (end of dream)
I didn’t quite understand this dream at the time but now several days later I am slowly putting the pieces together. Yesterday my husband chose an oracle card. The card was called FIRE underneath it said “Take responsibility for your power”.
Today I decided to research Mountain Lion medicine to get a better understanding but it wasn’t until I saw this that I realized how perfect the card FIRE fit with the cougar message, my dream and real life situations. I used http://dreamoraclecards.com/
